Are there ApacheTop like tool for Nginx for measuring hit contents?

I want to find out the most popular URL from the web server log (Nginx)

Although Nginx Stub module might come in handy but i find it less informative than apache counterpart.

For your requirement, wtop might be the best.

I know this is an old thread and also already answered, but I like to notice that apachetop handles nginx log files as well. The only thing needed is to modify the nginx.conf file for generating apache like logs. Just add or modify the following line:

log_format  main  '$remote_addr $host $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" $status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" "$http_user_agent" $ssl_cipher $request_time';
